+Please ensure that release announcements include a brief description of the product near
the start of the text.
+Although readers on the developer and user lists will presumably know what the product does,
+it's unlikely that other readers will have much idea.
+Don't force recipients to read the product website merely to find out whether the software
is
+of interest to them.
